50 Cent: Having a Bullet Fragment Embedded in Your Tongue is Great for Oral Sex

It’s interesting to note that rapper 50 Cent reckons the bullet fragment embedded in his tongue is great for oral sex (hence the headline). What amazes me: he correctly uses the word “metaphor” to describe an aspect of his song writing. I suppose I could write something about Fiddy glorifying “gun violence” by treating it so cavalierly, but that would be churlish. Suffice it to say, much of the rapper’s music does that already.


NBC and NYPD Mis-ID Intratec Model AB-10 and Calico Model M-9 as “Submachine Guns”

“A man stopped for public drinking on Staten Island had two submachine guns on him, police said.” That’s the 411 (911?) from nbcnewyork.com. “When the officers opened the bag, police say they found an Intratec Model AB-10 submachine gun and a Calico Model M-9 submachine gun.” Even though the correct models of the pistols are given in the story, they are still misidentified as submachine guns. With all the scorn that has been heaped on media outlets for their ignorance about guns over the last 60 years, you would think that news reporters or editors would . . .

New From SIG SAUER: The Reintroduced P225


The DA/SA thing was never attractive to me (until I shot the P229 Legion) but I can see why it appeals to some shooters. I am, however, a big fan of single stack 9mm pistols. I like their relative slimness, their lighter weight and easy carriability (if that’s a word). Now jumping back into the 9mm single stack game is SIG SAUER with the reintroduction of the P225. Here’s their press release . . .

Pro Tip: How Not To Shoot a Revolver

Via getzone.com

Hickok45 demonstrates what a snub nose .44 Magnum can do to a piece of paper held next to the cylinder when it’s fired. As the pressure and burning powder from the discharge are released, anything next to the cylinder gets a shower of hot debris. If you value your digits, take heed.


What Could Possibly Go Wrong: A Salt Weapon Edition

“Salt Supply Co. has designed a paintball-style gun that shoots pellets filled with pepper spray that rupture on impact,” fox2now.com reports. “The Salt gun is designed to be a safe alternative to traditional firearms so that nobody gets killed, including children who might discover the gun and think it’s a toy, or a family member that’s mistaken for a burglar . . . The $300 handgun is powered by CO2 cartridges and holds seven .70-caliber slugs. They contain ghost pepper extract encased in a ball that breaks on impact like an egg. [The inventor] said it causes the lungs to constrict, as they would during an asthma attack.” What could possibly go wrong?


FBI Ditching .40 for 9mm

As it currently stands, the FBI issues special agents a GLOCK 22 or a GLOCK 23 in .40 S&W caliber. If the agent fails their first qualification, Quantico’s quislings swap out the .40 cal pistol for a 9mm G17 or G19. The Fibbies’ “tolerance” for 9mm reflects a 2014 caliber study concluding that “the move to 9mm Luger can now be viewed as a decided advantage for our armed law enforcement personnel.” So here we are in November 2015 and it looks like the Fibbies are taking their own advice . . .

Question of the Day: Are You Suppressor Ready?

Earlier today, Smith & Wesson revealed its new suppressor-ready Performance Center 9mm models. As I pointed out, they cost a pretty penny: nearly a grand in the hand. Given the hassle and expense of buying a silencer (as its inventor called it), Smith’s decision to put a threaded barrel on their highest price 9mm handguns makes perfect sense. But what if the recently mooted Hearing Protection Act – which would make buying a suppressor as easy as purchasing a red dot or a muzzle brake – became law? (I’d love to hear President Obama’s reason for vetoing it!) Would you buy a suppressor? How many? For what? How much would you be willing to spend? Would you buy a threaded barrel for an existing gun or buy a new suppressor-ready model? Do you already have one or more suppressors? Basically, are you suppressor ready?


New from Smith & Wesson: Suppressor-Ready Performance Center M&P Ported and Performance Center M&P C.O.R.E. (Competition Optics Ready Equipment)

Not to be outdone by GLOCK’s MOS (Modular Optic System) models, Smith & Wesson is releasing a couple of new 9mm handguns with threaded barrels. Smith already offers a can-ready M&P22 and a dual-barreled M&P9 that allow you save your ears. Now they’ve gone up-market with the new Performance Center M&P Ported and the Performance Center M&P C.O.R.E. pistols. Notice the words “Performance Center”? We’re talking big bucks. Threadedness adds $175 (for a pattern of ½”-28-2A) to guns that already retail for over $800 and $750, respectively. Worth it? You tell me. Or your local gun store. Full press release after the jump . . .

Selma Blair: Home Carry Only for My Four-Year-Old

“Even though Selma Blair‘s 4-year-old son Arthur Saint plans on dressing up as a police officer this Halloween, he will not be allowed to carry his toy gun in his holster,” celebritybabies.people.com reports. “I won’t let him carry around the play gun for Halloween,” the Legally Blond brunette told People. “He doesn’t get to carry it around outside.” But Art gets to imitate life inside the home. “I’m new at navigating this,” Blair said using her best Hollywood therapy-speak. “He only plays with this cap gun with Mom or Dad around, and he seems to respect it so far and understands that these are plastic toys and we don’t shoot people.” Unless . . .

How to Convert A Standard GLOCK to Full Auto [VIDEO]

By Jake Hover via wideopenspaces.com

First and foremost, a disclaimer: the creator of the video, Currin1776, needed very specific licensing to legally complete this conversion. This video was created for demonstration purposes only and is only informational. Don’t try this at home, kids. Once you are properly licensed, though, all you need is a new end cap, disconnector and a selector switch to make just about any GLOCK a bullet hose. And what else are you gonna do with those 33-round magazines?



Gun Review: GLOCK 40 MOS


The gun for this review was provided by the Kentucky Gun Company

I finally got my hands on the much heralded GLOCK G40 MOS, the six-inch, optics-ready 10mm juggernaught. I shot its older, littler brother the G20 as my first entry in my truck pistol series – and found it wanting. As I said in that post, I want to love GLOCKs. I generally find them just okay for the job. I keep trying GLOCKs in the hopes that I may one day find one I can shoot well. I may have found it . . .

Sara’s Family Freaks At Armed Pumpkin Carving. Her Daughter? Not So Much

It’s that creepy and frightening time of the year when children get to dress up in costumes and parents everywhere get to help their child choose a carve-worthy pumpkin. This Halloween was no different, aside from the fact that I’m always armed now and I have a few pictures to show it. It’s not like I was going to remove my gun to carve pumpkins. Why would I? That gun is a part of every outfit. Period.  Not even thinking, my husband snapped a few images (that are poor in quality, since he really doesn’t understand my super cool Android phone) and sent a few to some liberal relatives. Lo and behold . . .
